We went to Honeysuckle Hill Farm with our friends Glen, Laura, Nadine, and Abiel to help celebrate my favorite season. They had so many fun things for children (way more than just a corn maze) that we have decided to definitely go back next year.
Elijah has learned to take delight in pumpkins and jackets and running. Daddy and Elijah in the helicopter swingset.
Everyone took turns on the see-saw. When we couldn't find Nadine we would look on either the see-saw or in the corn maze.
Horse tire swings:
(Almost) doing it by himself!
Elijah, of course, tasted the handlebar. Yuck!
One of the highlights was seeing all the animals. Elijah was even able to pet the horse.
Nadine and Laura about to slide down the extremely fast tube slide:
I'm serious about it being fast. They have this really long mat to catch you at the end because you just can't stop!
Elijah and Daddy at the top of the tube slides. Elijah decided he didn't really like these, probably because I screamed the whole way down.
They also had a huge sandbox circumscribed by a tricycle track. Elijah loved playing with the dump trucks. We found sand in Elijah's shoes and Abiel's ears.
This hay maze was a little too scary for Elijah. This did not prevent us from shoving him in there though.
Chickens, rabbits, a horse, a dog, a goat....
You were allowed to "pick" a little pumpkin from this huge field to take home. When Elijah saw all the baby-size pumpkins he went a little crazy. He just ran around touching all the pumpkins, picking one up, running, picking up a different pumpkin - and squealing the whole time. Abiel and Elijah both tasted the pumpkins from the field.
